New Delhi: The Delhi government on Tuesday tabled a resolution to set up a Commission of Inquiry to probe alleged corruption in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

Tabling the resolution, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia alleged that gross irregularities had taken place in the DDCA.


He said the Delhi assembly was concerned over the “massive corruption” in the cricket body.

“I urge that the Assembly to constitute an inquiry commission Under Rule 90 of 1953, Section 3,” Sisodia reportedly said at the special session.

Seeking a probe into the charges of corruption in the cricket body, Sisodia said, “Some media reports said that sports is not a state subject. But sports is a state subject,” adding, “In Delhi, when a young person tries to play cricket professionally, he has to face corruption. People are playing with future of talented cricketers.”

AAP MLA Alka Lamba spoke in favour of the motion and condemned the CBI raid on Kejriwal’s office.

Slamming Finance Minister and former DDCA president Arun Jaitley, Lamba sought a probe against him for alleged corruption in the association during his tenure i.e. 1999-2013 in the cricket body.

“I was in the Secretariat when the raid happened and CBI officials read each paper of the DDCA files and notes were read and inquired into,” Lamba said. (With inputs from agencies)

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
